Partnering for relief efforts
We work as one team with our people, contractors, customers, partners and communities to respond to natural disasters or catastrophes in the communities. This includes making resources available, volunteering, and supporting the front-line workers and organizations before, during and after an event.
Over time, AES Colombia has supported the relief agencies in the surrounding area to ensure that they are well trained and prepared for any situation that presents risks.
In 2019, the Volunteer Fire Department of Santa María received contributions for COP $50 million to make adaptations to the infrastructure of the fire station and to invest in training for work at height.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, AES Colombia has been very attentive to support the most vulnerable communities where we have operations. Aid was supplied to communities of the municipality of Uribia in La Guajira, Santa María in Boyacá and Castilla in Meta.
